A Day of Firsts - June 18, 2013

So today my darling girl is growing up.  I have wished for these milestones, but now that they are here they remind me that time is passing and I am going to blink and her babyhood will be over.  Today she smiled at me for the first time and looked like she really meant it.  She also has been discovering her hands belong to her and managed to suck her thumb for the first time.  She is also getting too big for her newborn clothes and is in a 3 month onesie today.  She is too big for the few items of clothing that belonged to her sister...  All the things we did not get to have with Grace, all the milestones, all the sleepless nights.  God do I miss her.  Rosabella helps, I cannot lie that having her has not been a balm for my soul and healing for my heart, but I still miss my first born girl with every heartbeat.

  1. In a way, our little rainbows remind us of all we don't have. I had children before Eva but Nathan brings her back to me...I can only imagine what it would be like if I had a girl...
